5.21 Album list - Year? wtf

Ok, I know the number of tracks aint that important, but why is the album year all of a sudden displayed in the media library instead of the number of tracks???

most of my albums have got the wrong or no year tagged anyway, and i dont like stuff that is wrong! --so does this mean i now gotta go through every album and change the year, instead of living in blissful ignorance???

I still think total album playing time would be the best thing to have...the option to choose would be nice.

different strokes for different folks.

if you dont like stuff that is wrong, why are all your tags incorrect?

deal with it.

Or right-click on header > customize columns.

Hehe
Thanks for this thread, you made my day

/goes to read first post again


For me right-clicking the column header doesn't give me the option Customize columns though. It displays three colums in the Album pane: Album, Year and Tracks.
If I right-click I get the Play/Enqueue/Send to:/Rate menu (which works on the current selection).
I'm on Win98SE at the moment, maybe that matters ().

well when youve got over 200 albums, some bits of the tags are gonna be missing [usually the year is wrong, cos its less important than the other fields]...i just wanna know why has it has all of a sudden changed?
...and you cant right click and customise the columns.

as well:
I thought he was referring to the track pane.

But yeah, the album pane still displays the number of tracks.
The year column in that pane can be hidden too though: simply resize it to zero.

Do people like this addition?

I added it to mlipod ages ago, and always wanted it in the local media. So I decided to go ahead and add it myself.

I like it, mostly because it adds the option to sort albums by year.

So the first thread where this feature is mentioned is a rant about it...

But it's nice, yes

Love this feature. I've wanted to be able to do this for a long time. Now I can have the albums listed in chronological order by year. Maybe I have some sort of minor case of OCD or something but having the albums only sortable by name always bothered me.

This is really cool, though an option to turn it on and off is appreciated. Now... how hard would it be for it to have 'Genre' instead of 'Year'? That's such a simple feature I've wanted for years.
